"Hi, my name is the Doctor, and I have a problem."

He says it in Dutch, because none of his so-called teammates are here needing him to speak in their language--

(--they bill themselves as so PC, so multi-national and enlightened and global, but if Shen Li-Min ever speaks in her native Tibetan he never hears it, and everybody else is American or British; English is the order of the day. Hawksmoor knows at least fifteen languages, and the Engineer could probably download the Rosetta language software directly into her brain in half a second, and he refuses to believe that all the black-ops training Midnighter and the Apollo received didn't include other languages, and God knows Jenny Sparks can probably swear in any of a hundred tongues--

(--but everybody speaks English. Nobody questions it, nobody talks about using Chinese, so he's stuck listening to a stereophonic chorus of shamans from every continent and culture in the back of his skull and translating all of it into English before he can actually talk to the six people he saves the world with--)

--and he likes Dutch better. The words feel like old friends in his mouth, little bits of an identity that's already getting swallowed up in this business of being the shaman. He'd even said it: My name is the Doctor. Said it without thinking, because... it's who he is now. Because half the time he can't remember who he was before the Singularity opened up and the Powers That Be shoved a spinning blue-green planet into his chest.

Same planet that's rotating beneath them.Collapse )

"Door." A simple word, but all the Carrier needed to open a rectangle of golden light from the junction room to somewhere a good deal less futuristic and surreal. The alley behind the bar was a world away from gleaming chrome washed in the red glow of the space between dimensions.

The Doctor stepped through, and the door winked out behind him. He stood stock still for a moment, wrestling with the desire to just open another door and get back to the safety of the ship. The Doctor--

No. He had told her Jeroen. That meant he wasn't the Doctor. Not tonight. Couldn't hide behind that. Had to try and remember what it was like to be just Jeroen, a random Dutch bloke going to have a drink with a girl. Woman. Whichever.

Jeroen glanced self-consciously down at himself. His clothes had been chosen for normalcy rather than for any sort of style. Plain blue jeans and a plain white t-shirt, as mundane as you could get. All that mattered was that he didn't look like a freak.

The goggles had to stay though. Jeroen paused a moment, considering, then fingered the goggles' rim briefly. Now they were simply red-tinted sunglasses-- a little weird to wear in a bar, maybe, but not so out there.

He took a deep breath and made for the bar's door. Once inside, he peered around the bar's interior, looking for the blonde girl. When he spotted her, he walked over.

not sure where I/we/Carrier is.


world feels the same
      but most don't know
    who     or     what


which is you know really FUCKING refreshing
     not having my Dreamtime interrupted with technology ping of radiotelepathy and Jenny saying:
  (saying-her-voice-its-usual-brassy-piano-nicotine on my mind:)
This is Jenny Sparks for the Authority, breaking across all known frequencies and languages, including your own...

Yeah no shit Jennifer Sparks. No shit noshitnoshitnoshinoshnshs--

But I'm totally cool with it.

I can dig it.
Is it just me? Apollo and the Midnighter don't seem to notice. Could be me. Could be changing as I go, altering people and my/their perceptions, not wanting the goddamn noise--
{maybe it's Jennyfuture?}

maybe I'm going mad?

Stranger things have. Uhh. I fucking

and the garden's rioting with color of high summer and here's my world out
the carrier's window all so beautiful it breaks my heart, there, this blue thing
that's my village, that's my baby to take care of, mine, i don't want to fail her, i'm sitting here
because she's so beautiful look at the green and the white and the gulf stream
like blood in the veins
and that gets me back to the ache for the needle--

fuck this.
